"Evolution is a lie" and the campus god-botherers
A group of preaching evolution-deniers dropped by campus yesterday. I didn't really engage them but sat back and watched as some of the students did (which is very encouraging to see and hear since they are talking about something that at least matters instead of what Miley Cyrus did this week). I talked to some of the undergrads for a little bit (a couple of the preachers tried worming their way into the conversation but left very quickly when I didn't say things they couldn't twist into a semantics argument to claim victory) and I snagged myself this

Yes. That is the Ray Comfort ambush and edit DVD "Evolution vs. God" that another thread has already been started about. Score. Well, kind of. I want to watch it but I can already feel my blood pressure rising.

Might I suggest using the DVD as a coaster, back-up frisbee, or skeet shooting target? Failing that, I would suggest...

Rip it, post it, share it.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Just google it, they have a website where they posted it for free. It was actually pretty interesting to watch. Not from an intellectual standpoint, but watching how it was put together and edited is amusing. He obviously had to take the absolute worst moments of each interview and use only those moments in order to make his argument even vaguely competent (which he ultimately completely fails to do because, come on, it's Ray Comfort).

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Hold on.

Campus.
As in a university?
As in a place for learning?

Who the fuck let Bible Bashers on the grounds of such a place?

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

It's a public University, you can't stop them.

You're not thinking creatively enough...
